For over four years, Ferm and Tee have been performing to sold-out audiences across the country. The Pump and Dump Show is a fun and rowdy evening of comedy, singing, games, prizes, drinking, cursing and commiseration, with a clear and universal theme: Parenting is screwed up and hilarious, and we're all just doing the best we can.Motherhood is wonderful for many reasons, but moments of clarity are so often outweighed by public outbursts, poison control phone calls and poop (everywhere!) it's difficult to stop and realize that it's not always a direct reflection of our parenting skills.This gift book is a collection of segments from Ferm and Tee's popular show, including:The Most F**ked Up Thing Your Kid Has Done Recently cards. One of the most popular segments of the show, members of the audience write down crazy and memorable things their kids have done. It is hysterical, cathartic, and never disappoints.Sad Cake moments. Ever eaten cake that was just kind of sad? It's a situation, happenstance, or object that is a bit of a bummer, like getting in a fight on date night or getting puked on when there is no wine in the house. #SadCakeStump the Breeder trivia questions. So you think making a person makes you an expert on making a person? Test your knowledge by answering "extremely difficult" questions so you feel like you know what you're doing.Awesome MOMents. Games for moms to play when and if they ever get a night with friends, like: The Parentally Incorrect Drinking Game--If you've done it, you drink. If you haven't done it, you drink.Lies We Tell Ourselves Before We Have Kids. I'll still hang out after the kids go to bed. Yes you will. But not with your friends. With a glass of wine to help you forget the smell of spit up.
Parentally Incorrect Review
- January 1, 1970MehsiI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.Um, what the hell did I just read? My expectations: Hilarious short notes on hilarious things kids do (things like colouring the walls, saying some weird things, maybe some awkward farts). What I got: Poo, pee, poo, pee, penis, vagina, disturbing stories of kids touching their parts and licking it (yes, really), sex, and more poop.

What I got: Poo, pee, poo, pee, penis, vagina, disturbing stories of kids touching their parts and licking it (yes, really), sex, and more poop. There were a few stories that had me in stitches, but generally I was either grossed out or very much disturbed at what the kids did.It must be a culture thing as well, as I have read enough Dutch/UK-English parenting books, and none of them focussed so much on poop, pee, or sex. Sure, there were some stories in those books, but WAY less. And also WAY less cursing.I am sorry to say that this book severely puts me off ever getting kids, and that I really needs some bleach because dang, that was just disturbing and disgusting to read. Bah. I feel very terrible for reading these things.And yes, I get that this Fucked up things kids do, but this was way beyond that. I even discussed it with other people, told them examples, and they agreed that it wasn't fucked up anymore, it was way more than that. And yes, they also wanted some mind-bleach. Also it would have been nice if they just had typed over the notes or at least provided a transcription of the text, as I just couldn't for life of me, read quite a few of the notes. :|So yeah, wouldn't recommend. :| Unless you want to be sick/feel disturbed for quite a bit of the day (which no, I wouldn't recommend).Review first posted at https://twirlingbookprincess.com/more
- January 1, 1970EmmaThis was equal parts hysterical and terrifying, I laughed so hard.
- January 1, 1970RyanThis is a fun book full of postcard stories of parents crazy stories of their kids. They are fun, smart, and real. Plus the authors put in a few drinking games, and things that make for #saddays. A good read when you need a laugh.
- January 1, 1970Curious ReaderThis book is OK. But not my type and certainly not what I expected. It's funny book if you are broad minded.Note: I received a free e-copy of the book via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. Special thanks to the author and publisher for giving me a chance to read it.more
